for this opportunity to be here with my two colleagues, both alexei arbatov from carnegie moscow center and also with general yao, who i've had the pleasure of visiting at her academy in beijing, and talking with some of her very impressive graduate students and postgraduate students. so it's a real honor and a pleasure to be here on the stage today. george, you're talking to negotiate of the new s.t.a.r.t. treaty, so honestly i do feel we've progress over the past four years. i will say that quiet progress, new start has been in implementation for two plus years, and we've had a great i would say success story but a quiet success story in the way the verification regime has taken shape and has come together. that is not only the inspections, what do senator lugar always used to call the boots on the ground that are so important, but the fact that we have created a real-time day in day out mode of communication between and among our strategic forces. we have exchanged over this point over 4000 notifications. every time we move one of our bombers for greater than a 24 hour period, we have to noti

, out of the united states. he flew out of new york on january 12th, 2012, to moscow and returned on july 17th, 2012. and whether he was visiting relatives, we're told he does have family there. but at the same time, they want to know whether he went for any sort of terror training during those travels. a couple of other points that highlight how these two brothers were not on the radar screen of law enforcement until after the bombings at the marathon. and that's because on these travel documents, for this older brother, he's listed as a person or instrument that may pose a threat to the security of the united states. and that that is posted on the documents this morning. at 6:00 a.m. for the younger brother, it says, he's a known or suspected terrorist. and their associates, facilitators and family members also placed this morning at 6:29 a.m. so it shows how quickly law enforcement was trying to catch up with the suspects. and the label on their travel documents at minimum, to try to stop them from leaving the country and catch up with them. but unfortunately as we see, they we

happened in these terrorist attacks in russia. the 2000 moscow siege, killed over 120 people. the bess lan school massacre. over 300 killed, mostly children. the moscow metro bombing, 39 people killed. foreign policy has an interesting anal a sysianalysis. chernen writes the numerous terror strikes have not been included in the short list of major terrorist attacks, america's 9/11, london's 7-7, and spain. instead, russia was placed in a different category where like in israel, terrorism was deemed a response to the government's repression, rather than an attack against humanity as such. that's obviously one person's take. in the broader conversation about global terror, those attacks are not often included in the same list. >> although if you are living in moscow or living in russia, you would certainly say they were terrorism. the russians did at the time say they were attacks of terrorism. a conversation we're having now is a reminder of why we do need to know what's happening around the world. why it matters what's happening in chechnya, the capital was flattened during the war there.
